It's no snip snapping Snipe
Weary and wary, Latham's Snipe (Gallinago hardwickii) make their way south away from the Asian winter.
In past few years the birds have reached Ingham early in August.
Bit later this year, but no easier to close in on.
They will, however, on occasion allow the old Camry to sneak up on them.
Just a familiar Japanese background, no doubt! :-)
But haven't had much luck in capturing picture of prey, which sometimes takes considerable effort to slurp up.
